With mingw, I specify this to the linker

c:/program files/openssl/lib/mingw/libcrypto-1_1.a

In Visual Studio,

Linker - Input - Additional Dependencies: libcrypto32mdd.lib
Linker - General - Additional Library Directory: c:\program files\openssl

However, it sounded like you were linking correctly, but Windows could
not find the dll at runtime.  That points to a PATH issue.
